Metro's regular people-powered and electric bicycles will now be available to rent in the Hollywood area. The 12 new docking stations are located near the intersections of Franklin/Fuller, Hollywood/ Highland, Highland/Sunset, Hawthorne/ Orange, McCadden/Hollywood, Cherokee/Hollywood, Whitley/Hollywood, Ivar/Hollywood, Hollywood/Vine, Fountain/Vine, Yucca/Argyle, and McCadden/Santa Monica. The new bicycle docking stations were created in part on community feedback.


“In L.A. we're committed to giving people more affordable and enjoyable ways to get around,” said LADOT General Manager Seleta Reynolds. “Thanks to our partners at Metro, we can now give Angelenos and visitors a new way to get to one of America's most iconic neighborhoods.”

“Addressing the climate emergency demands immediate investment in other affordable modes of transportation that don't rely on fossil fuels,” said Councilmember Mitch O'Farrell, from the 13th Council District. “The expansion of Metro's Bike Share Program in Hollywood will help this effort substantially by creating an easier way for Angelenos to move within and beyond this historic neighborhood.
